Leadership Chenango

Commerce Chenango is currently accepting applications for the Leadership Class of 2024. 

Applications are now available for the Leadership Chenango Class of 2024!

For the last 35 years, Leadership Chenango has groomed up-and-coming community and business leaders by giving them a greater understanding of all facets of the greater Chenango Community while helping them enhance and develop their personal and professional leadership skills. The program falls under the auspices of the Chenango Foundation, the non-profit arm of Commerce Chenango.

Offered every other year, the 10-month program includes deep dives into local government, agriculture, education, social services, the non-profit sector, judicial system, economic development, tourism, health care, business, entrepreneurship, all aspects of leadership and more.

Acceptance into the program is a competitive process. Applications, which are now available on the Commerce Chenango website, are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, December 22, 2023. Interviews and final class selection will take place in January 2024.

The Class of 2024, which will be facilitated by Melissa Stagnaro, will kick off with an orientation and two-day retreat in February. The class will meet twice monthly from March to October and conclude with a final class and graduation in November.

Tuition for the class is $1,750, which may be paid by the participant’s employer or organizational sponsor, plus a $100 personal commitment fee. Partial scholarship assistance is available based on certain criteria.

If you or someone you know has a strong desire to serve the community, grow personally and professionally, and is ready to take an active role in shaping the future of Chenango County, we encourage you to apply!
